Calling for submissions: Disability Awareness and the Disabled in the Science Community Grant Jacobs Jul 30


Update: I’m pushing back the date of the disability carnival. More news on this later, but notice this means you’ve still got time to contribute!

Code for life is to host the August edition of the Diversity in Science Blog Carnival, with the theme Disability Awareness and Disabled Workers in the Science Community.

Diversity in Science Blog Carnival

When writing about diversity, people often first consider race, gender or sexuality; the dominant themes of past editions of  Diversity in Science reflect this.
